Hundreds of oil wells here in Utah


Sunday-9/23- Blue Cut RV, Helper, UT

We stayed for 4 nights and drove 170 miles on a beautiful scenic drive Monday through Nine-Mile Canyon. The canyon drive was full of turns with cliffs hundreds of feet tall. Half way through the canyon was an area with hieroglyphs from thousands of years ago low on the cliff ledges. Surprising to us, there was no electricity, cell service or telephones and yet the canyon had many small cattle ranches. The Nine-Mile canyon was in the middle of a 110 mile drive. The first 50 miles had the cattle ranches, and then we drove through the Nine-Mile canyon. As we left the canyon, we drove through 40 miles full of oil wells...and no, gas is not cheaper here. On the drive back, we drove a different road to an elevation of 9200 feet and saw the aspens in full, gold fall colors--what a sight to see!
